Building a Future PANEL:
Where Improvisation and Culture Come Together
Five years ago Arts for Art began meeting with educators to encourage Improvisation-based
music as part of curriculum and to address access to complex music in underserved communities.
This program is now called coT.I.M.E. (community of Teachers of Improvised Musical Excellence).
Teachers discuss their findings and ideas for new curricula to build a future of innovators and
improvisers from a broad population and help new generations find their unique voice.
French American PANEL
French and American musicians of different generations and influences
will shed some light on how this transatlantic cultural exchange
shaped their music as well as their social and political ideals, and on
the many ways this conversation continues to amplify and resonate.
